Abstract

­

This study aims to determine the factors of adopting hybrid rice cultivation in Bangladesh using Probit model. It is conducted through collecting data from the primary sources following random sampling technique. To identify the determinants hybrid rice adoption by applying Probit model, the proportion of hybrid rice area under all rice varieties is used as dependent variable, whereas some specific variables which may affect the hybrid rice cultivation are used as independent variables. The result of Probit model shows that age, education, agricultural extension department, BADC, NGO, and company are positively significant factors in encouraging hybrid rice adoption. In the opposite, farm size and the source of information are significant but negatively related to adoption of hybrid rice cultivation in Bangladesh. This study may provide great insights to the policy makers and agro-researchers to take the right initiatives for expanding hybrid rice cultivation, thus, contributing effectively to achieve the targets of sustainable development goals – like making hunger free country.
